Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

The show sheds light on the almost-mythical stories that are told about models who are "discovered" and make it big in the fashion world. It shows that while some aspiring models are lucky enough to get noticed, being lucky is simply not enough to succeed in the business. It also highlights what it takes for young men or women to go from being someone with modeling potential to a professional model who can successfully navigate the high fashion industry.

While some of the journeys these young people take are quite successful, others reveal some of the pitfalls of the industry, like the incredible pressure the industry places on young people to be thin, and the emotional maturity the aspiring models have to have to handle the pressure of the business. The impact overbearing and/or unsupportive parents can have on their child's career is also underscored. But overall, it offers a glimpse into the high fashion modeling world, and the exciting and difficult steps it takes to get there.
